 The back of quilt with butterfly's .
 Front of quilt, this was a quilt as you go and it was fun and easy. 
 As you know I am not a great quilter but for ever trying.
My lines didn't match up for some reason so the butterfly's were just the thing to cover up.
I will keep trying to make a quilt that will one day pass inspection.

I Was Cleaning Out ( Up Date)

my sewing boxes and some of the things were my mothers 30 years ago.
(Frank said Grants has been closed 40 years. He worked for them.)
 Remember the T G&Y store   and Grants stores? 
 These electric scissors were made in Switzerland I don't remember mother using them
but they don't work now, we tried them. The snaps came from Grants.
 many buttons from Wal-Mart 67 cent and bought for 25 cents.
 Buttons from J H B International 67 cents
 lots of thread from T G & Y some still have the wrapper on them and  never been used.
By Loving Touch 100% nylon transparent thread  never opened 75 cents 
Do you think the thread is any good still?

Not Much More to Go

With the quilt as you go lap quilt . Next I will sew the binding on and add  the butterfly's to the back.
This has been different , I liked doing the blocks that was easy.
The long sides will have to be hand quilted or not.

Mothers book on Vegetables

I was looking for something to do with Eggplant.
Came across my mothers old book.
 A 1970's Farm Journal
I had forgotten so many ways to fix vegetables. When we were kids 
we ate lots more vegetable then now. Daddy grew a large garden and
so did my grandmother as I looked at the book I saw many dishes mother and grandmother made.
I love to read cookbooks.

This was made for A Daughter

The back of the crayon quilt was yellow.
 The top quilt was made from this,  I didn't want to make so many
of the stars
So I made tulips to feel in.
